11:08 am
accommodate inflation. that's where i think it comes in. -- mark: on the comments from carney, letting the cpi overshoot, moving towards .9%, the strongest in two years. how far above 2% can it overshoot before central bankers become uncomfortable with it? in general you see an imperative below target inflation. fromu take the eurozone being just below 2% to being discouraged from the 2008 since then, you're on year. when will it squeak in terms of nothingnflation but do about it? in some sense it's a bigger picture. you can see the rationale. that is difficult. once inflation gets to where you
11:09 am
see it on your chart, removing all signs of the five-year, that gives the longer-term expectation and is incredibly low. sense, mario draghi has a tolerance. does he have the means to achieve in europe and japan? in a real sense, that's a killer. to a fair degree of dumping to have the means to achieve that. vonnie: that's big advice, after janet yellen spoke. is it achievable here? how long will it take before we see in ration really take off? in the u.s. i would say more so. again, however you want to
11:10 am
measure it, you can say policy in the old days. events, but from that perspective you can see accommodate a policy from that perspective. in the u.s. it is a headline inflation rate their. probably just around the five-year average. there's a tolerance to see that go higher. when you see it coming through in energy prices, that is when you start to squeeze consumers because of the goods you can't substitute elsewhere. that's where things could start to get uncomfortable. already coming against the background of modest growth. getting the price of what are essential limits squeezing
11:11 am
consumers and creating problems for central bankers. vonnie: can the u.s. dig the rest of the world out of its demand? we are seeing a stronger dollar, but really if you take a weg-term view of the dollar, are really in a range over the last couple of years. what would we need to see for the u.s. to be able to help out italy? i think that this is a difficult mandate to pull off at this point in time. the u.s. canat prop up a global economy is getting undermined. generally growing faster than the u.s. in emerging markets, output ish a shared essential in the last 20 years. especially depending on how you measure it.
11:12 am
you can't allow the u.s. -- same as in europe -- we tend to think that we can save our problems, but it's not the case. for the u.s. it will be hard when you have a readily mature cycle. comparing the cycle to the u.s. recovery, compared to the to use a 100d, meter analogy, having it liquidate the cycle i think is not quite what we can expect to see. mark: quick question. overlooking my right shoulder is pound dollar going to 1980. on the flash crash day a few fridays ago, what next? how low? simon: things never move in a straight line, but i'm sure it's more true than the sterling
11:13 am
dollar and the markets being incredibly short. obviously from that point you think 120. i can see it having shorts in recovery potential with a bigger picture into year-round warnings. mark: thank you for joining us. pro of research, simon smith. funny? vonnie: and coming -- a vonnie? up, hsbcnd coming where they are forecasting a u.s. rate hike. find out next. this is bloomberg. ♪

11:17 am
that a move by the fed doesn't tell you about the next one. interest rate rises in the signal, that's the big bull market in 2014. going back, we thought rates should be 2.5 in december and they are not going to be. so, maybe december, maybe, but then another year? are you really worried about that? no, i'm not. sorry. the end of next 10 year bond yields cable? -- or cable? >> from here? david: 135, it's quite close. >> when you take a look at inflation expectations, it seems to be different from the past. taking a look at the terminal, 30, tenure, five-year, at a five-month high. do you see is just not sustainable and rolling over?
11:18 am
that's six months of history or more. >> this is five months. >> if you go back five years, we will see -- the point is and i think what you are trying to say is that four out of five of us spot inflation measures close to the 2% number. if you look at the forwards, where the market is expecting it to go, it's close to 2%. on the basis that it matters, the fed should be tightening. forwardeople that guidance was suspended in 2014. this idea of inflation and unemployment triggering a rate hike, if they manage it this month or next, they will be on scale of delivering one per year . as david said, it's going to take a decade to get to a meaningful level. there won't be a decade. it'll be a few years before the next downturn. people were saying for hikes per year. ur hikes per year.

standards, banco popolare di executive will receive the country in its third-biggest bank, saying that restructuring will be crucial. of the most important things right now is the situation and the sort of solution that has been found for loans. but they still need a capital increase. of course, we need investors to believe in this plan. it will be the potential turnaround of the sentiment for the banking system. mark: simple question, michael, will this lead to more mma among he italian banks? michael: there are a number of
11:23 am
issues within italy and raleigh in europe, where everyone agrees that the should be banking consolidation. seeing shareholders get behind the deal will certainly help to relieve some of the reticence. mark: let's start with that and go to ramsey and his future. where are we in the i-4's there are ahael: number of issues on the to do list. throwing down loans, they need a political plan in place. they recently put a new ceo in place. they have to have a little bit of time for him to get going. that's true. his own future, he has encouraged banks and finances to push through these restrictions. these measures to abolish restrictions on ownership and voting rights. of a referendum and the
11:24 am
theory is that if he loses that, aese might unravel? michael: big part of the story is the political one. if you have a total change in leadership, that could set back the whole issue several months. a big hurdle for the banking sector, but to this point we have seen in this case a domestic deal. the real question is, down the line will we get some order deals? -- cross-border deals? mark: foreigners have spurned the bank, haven't they? because of the limits of their ability to force change, pushed through the change. they are looking cheap, aren't they? michael: the question is, can
11:25 am
you see one deal like this one winding up successful? mark: we do talk about roger bank. it wouldn't be monday without it -- deutsche bank. it wouldn't be monday without it. theoring options because of impending legal expenses? be a capital would move. they would have to find a way for them to shrink the capital that they need in the u.s. new rules require them to capitalize the units, boosting the capital needed in that area. if they can find a way to reduce that figure without reducing their presence for clients in the u.s. mark: in a weaker position, it's one of the more profitable markets. michael: it was certainly threading a needle.
11:26 am
you can't generate the revenue needed to make it a profitable business otherwise. just before we came on one hour ago, germany would welcome deutsche bank as a way to lower lender requirements according to three lender officials. is germany getting involved? michael: it certainly -- it makes sense why they would want a less systemic deutsche bank. the question is, how do you shrink without losing revenue and profit? looking at what's happening to stocks seconds away, they are now in the closing index. ♪

important with every company but this is a long-term rising tide in an industry where they have a leadership position, they have gotten the content that they need in various markets and really, the margins are low right now because they are investing. they are putting resources into international. they are making changes in the business with price changes. it creates volatility but you have to look at the long-term trend which is generally up and to the right. this may be one of them. i think expectations are low enough that that is ok. david: the numbers we looked at were net numbers. are we sure how many people are leaving and coming back and what money they are putting into the market to keep that number up? >> well, they don't disclose anymore. they used to. but our expectation is that after turn having slight --
